Thanks to Stanley Ching for his notes and picture link. For those who couldn’t make it to the team’s banquet this year, some videos are up on the booster club website (http://www.orgsites.com/hi/wahinevbbc/_pgg4.php3), hopefully with more to come, as well as photos.  Jennifer Carey,  whose assistant coaching position was in question when head coach Bond Shymansky was let go by Georgia Tech following the season: has landed a position as director of operations with the University of California  Believe Cal is on the schedule for the Wahine this fall (CL)

Hawaii leading CSUN 25-23 in Set 1. Walker 10-1-17, has 10 of UH’s 15 kills. Timeout Matadors. Dyer puts down 2 of his 4 kills on D sets, UH wins Set 1 30-26. Walter 10-1-19, UH 17-4-38. Vance 3-0-11, this after 32 kills last night. They’re a little more diversified. Lots of serving errors, CSUN with 6, UH with 7.  

And about Kaufman …

she did not break both arms, she did fracture her right wrist and elbow. Never got a confirmation as to how. But she’s not in a cast currently.

Tuaniga will sit out Saturday’s match as well. Think the issue has been resolved. I know that he was struggling in school last fall, which is why he didn’t make the trip to Canada. Perhaps I misunderstood him when he said he hoped to be back for this match. Or maybe he didn’t know it would be a two-match thing.   Saw Aneli on the way to the arena. She is still on crutches but says the surgery from knee (left) surgery went well. Hopes to be available for the spring matches with Washington State March 14 and Nebraska March 19.
